In order to protect our customers & team members, we now have plexiglass up at our registers.

our team members & customers are our first priority.

We are open & here for you. We are an essential business & will remain open under the stay-at-home order. For now, our store hours are the same at both locations (with the exception of new Senior Hour at Clearwater).

MASKS For your protection and ours, please wear a mask while shopping at Nature’s Food Patch. We’ve received a shipment of masks we’d been waiting on. Team members are required to wear masks provided by The Patch in order to protect themselves and our customers.

DELIVERIES & STOCKING Our shelves are pretty well-stocked and we have been getting regular deliveries. Our amazing team has been doing their very best to keep the shelves stocked & serve you the very best that they can.

SOCIAL DISTANCING While in the store, we ask that you please use social distancing. We have tape that is measured 6 feet apart at our registers, and we ask that customers please use that tape as a guide to ensure the safety of other customers & team members.

ONE WAY AISLES We also have one way aisles and ask that you please comply with these signs in order to help with social distancing. 

PLEXIGLASS In order to help protect team members & customers, we now have plexiglass up at our registers at both locations. 

PLEASE BE COURTEOUS to our team members during this difficult time. We could all use a little positivity. A little bit of kindness REALLY goes a long way, especially these days! ❤️ Please feel free to add your love in the comments on our social media & we’ll make sure our team members hear every word!

SALE DAYS All sale days are canceled until further notice to reduce crowds (with the exception of new Senior Hour at Clearwater).

FREE EVENTS Our health seminars, cooking classes & events are also canceled until further notice.

REUSABLE BAGS If you bring your own bag, we ask that you bag your own groceries. Our Ban the Bag. Bring Your Own! donations will go to help those in need who have been affected by COVID-19.

SALES FLYERS We have suspended our bi-weekly FRESH sales flyer until further notice. We continue to have monthly sales flyers to provide you with the best sales possible during this difficult time, however, those sales were put in place before the pandemic. Please forgive us for any out-of-stocks. Unfortunately, no rain checks will be issued. Please bear with us.
